News: Schumacher in critical condition

Submitted by on December 30, 2013

Barrich-Schum_2002_USA_01_PHCMichael Schumacher lies in a coma with critical head injuries following a skiing accident in France.

We’re big Schumacher fans here at Motorsport Retro, so it was with horror that we received the news that the seven-time F1 Champion had been involved in a serious accident whilst skiing in the French Alps. Our concerns have now turned to prayer with word that his condition has deteriorated to ‘critical’.

The now 44-year old racing hero was air-lifted to Moutiers hospital immediately following the accident, however has been quickly transferred to the Grenoble hospital and has undergone emergency surgery. Grenoble features surgeons who specialize in brain injuries, and doctors have confirmed that despite having been conscious and outwardly suggesting that his injuries were not life threatening, Michael has now fallen into coma.

We can only hope that the same relentless spirit the saw him win five consecutive Formula 1 World Championships will see him through his injuries and back on the road to recovery. His 45th birthday is this Friday.

Keep fighting Schuey!!
